After attending New York University for a degree in Finance and Real Estate Investment, he moved to Singapore and then arrived in Vietnam in 1996. Here he developed several companies in purified water production, architecture, engineering, and real estate. In 2010, he developed Saint Honoré, a food company manufacturing and distributing bakery, pastry and catering products. In addition to this, there are restaurants and a 3000 m2 manufacturing plant.

The Order of Agricultural Merit is a French honorary order created in 1883 by the Minister as a reward for service rendered to agriculture. The tradition has been perpetuated, and today it rewards personalities who are eminent in the promotion of French cuisine and products.
